Three piece shoegaze fit from Santa Cruz,  Manorlady, have shared their debut album, No Bitter Ends. Produced by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Whirr), No Bitter Ends is a heady record with a ton of headroom for loud listening. Expect to be taken on a sonic journey that dances along the quiet-loud-quiet manner one expects from a post-rock band, and more specifically, a fashion in which Manorlady’s live shows tend to follow.

“No Bitter Ends is about bringing life back to basics as an attempt to find a sustainable path ahead. Basically trying to reel in all the loose ends without hurting anyone, especially the folks that are closest.” — Aaron Bailey(vocals, guitar) of Manorlady

The release of “Slow Coast” follows the release of the first single from the upcoming album, titled, “Ready Go Fade Away” which premiered on Born Music.

No Bitter Ends is available on vinyl, CD, and all streaming services today.

Manorlady are a family band. Since 2009 Manorlady have made music inspired by the wide open spaces and fluorescent sunsets on which we were raised in the Mojave Desert of Eastern California.

Early stuff featured a lot of male/female harmonies, dense guitar/bass/keys textures, and huge Cocteau-style drum machines often complimented by live drumming. The debut full-length ‘Home’ was released in 2011; LP ‘Ego Oppressor’ was released in 2012; EP ‘Barely Not Dead’ was released in 2016.

Manorlady are currently a three-piece residing in Santa Cruz, CA. The harmonies are still here, backed by a tight and explosive guitar/bass/drums arrangement.

No need to cite references or influences, what Manorlady does is throw it all in a cauldron and blast like a great guitar band knows how to do.” -Renato Malizia, The Blog That Celebrates Itself

“Formed in 2009, Santa Cruz based noisy & melodious shoegaze trio, Manorlady have been creating and self-releasing some sonically astute soundscapes via a seriously addictive back catalogue that skips nonchalantly through shoegaze, dream pop, and alternative rock with relative ease.” Primal Music Blog
